GENEVA – An Elburn man was arrested in Geneva after he was seen walking shirtless on Third Street waving a hammer and admitted he had drugs, according to Geneva police reports.

Police were called to the 200 block of South Third Street shortly after 7:30 p.m. on April 26 where they saw a man later identified as Xavier F. Saucedo, 25, of the 900 block of Griffith Avenue, Elburn, walking on the sidewalk, shirtless and waving a black hammer, according to reports.

Saucedo told police he was “super drunk and high” and that he had “Molly” in his backpack, the report stated.

A controlled substance, “Molly” is 3,4-methylenedioxy-methamphetamine, or MDMA. It is a synthetic drug that alters mood and perception, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse website, drugabuse.gov.

Police found the drug in the front pocket of Saucedo’s backpack in a plastic bag, the report stated.

Saucedo was charged with possession of a controlled substance, a Class 4 felony punishable by by one to three years in prison and fines up to $25,000, if convicted.

Saucedo was released on his personal recognizance, but the conditions of his bond require that he not use any drugs or alcohol and that he submit to random drug testing, court records show.

He is scheduled to appear in court May 19 for a status hearing.
